Tongue [STOCK] [CWM-BACKUP] Samsung Admire 2.3.4 Stock (EH02)

Here is a 100% Full Stock (when you first bought it) ClockworkMod Recovery Flash. Also for Users that do not want the Yellow Warning on Boot or using ODIN, (something I have -___-)

It is in a RAR format, if you cannot open it, download WinRAR, it's free at Welcome to Winrar .
If you also need ClockworkMod; http://www.acsyndicate.net/the-wait-is-over-clockworkmod-recovery-for-samsung-admire/

The only thing that is not on the phone is MyExtras.apk to allow Superuser and SU Commands be inputted.

This backup is not rooted.

Unzip the RAR and place the Folder in sd:/Clockworkmod/backup/(folder goes here.)
Turn phone off, and Hold VOL DOWN + BACK + PWR until the phone restarts twice.
Go to the "Backup and Restore" Menu and select Restore.
Once Backup is complete you can root the phone. Don't panic if the phone sends you back to recovery. Just reboot again.


Only do this on EH02 Devices (This might work on others, I'm just saying EH02 because I have an EH02 Phone). The .Android_Secure.TAR was all my apps that were sent to my SD Card (on a previous ROM).. they will not open, but however you cannot delete this until your backup is finished.

Thanks to 4Shared and Me, on trying to fix my phone last night.
Hopefully This Will Get "Sticky" xD.


ClockworkMod Recovery Backup for Samsung Admire EH02.rar - 4shared.com - online file sharing and storage - download [ClockworkMod Recovery Backup for Samsung Admire EH02]
I was unable to upload it to Mediafire because of the file size.

Have a good day!

Also, PLEASE Let me know if the Links are down, I will be gladly to upload it again.
SnuggS and eleg like this.

I think it's how our phones' are setup. It does it on the Huawei Ascend (sometimes). But I really don't know.

It has everything. 3G, Wifi Is Working, Everything. It's a backup from the Stock when you first bought it.

x.x but i never installed the 2.3.6 update so i never broke my data or anything like that. I just saw odin return to stock and said hey i want to return to stock.(was still very much a newb at the time didnt make a backup) and got stuck with the yellow triangle.

I really dont want to do the 2.3.6 update to fix the yellow triangle smh. guess ill just stick with it.

So is this the best way to go back to stock if I want to send my phone back or exchange it for a new one? I currently don't get the yellow triangle thing during startup even though I have Admiral Beast Rom installed. Also, can you put this up on mediafire or something?

ClockworkMod Recovery Backup for Samsung Admire EH02.rar - 4shared.com - online file sharing and storage - download [ClockworkMod Recovery Backup for Samsung Admire EH02]

The Download Speed is way to slow and I am shure no one wants to pay for increased speed. As soon as this down load is finished I will upload it to one of my own sites and you will be able to down load it much faster and for free.

Download Here: files.pc911support.net - /files/

If you see something else you want help yourself.

Hi everybody, 1st time here,
Another TOTAL noob (that's the reason why I've screwed up my phone!!!).I'll be definitely more cautious and will backup hard next time!

Long story short : I messed up my system files (first the audio player,erasing drm related sys.files,then phone.apk + a whole bunch of files messing around with Titanium backup & Co.)

I tried to manually copy .apk via Ghost Commander but the phone is stuck !
It seems to be a valid solution,since my phone isn't TOTALLY bricked.

CWM install went smooth.But when I try to flash your ROM MetroNoob I always end up with the freaking : "MD5 mismatch!"

I try that :
adb shell
# cd /sdcard/clockworkmod/backup/2012-03-08.01.19.00
# rm nandroid.md5
# md5sum *img > nandroid.md5

from another forum but no success.

Any idea anyone ?
Thanks very much...

I think I may be able to help you regarding the md5 mismatch. I got the same thing, but that was because I deleted the .Android_Secure.TAR BEFORE I tried restoring this backup. Everything went fine when I restored the backup exactly as it was when I first downloaded it. In other words, DO NOT delete the .Android_Secure.TAR file before restoring. After you have successfully restored the backup, wipe data and you should be good to go (at least this was what worked for me anyway )

Hope this helps

It did it after I re-download the MetroNoob files.
THANK YOU so much dude1891,you saved my a$$.
Thanks a lot both of you.
I get some knowledge (even if that wasn't the initial goal!),and I'm a little less ignorant Android-wize that I was a couple of days ago ... and I've learn my lessons!

so again if somebody have the same issue.
1-Be sure your download is fresh and untouched.
2- DO NOT delete the .Android_Secure.TAR file before restoring.Wipe datas afterward.

Jake, whenever you flash you Rom, make sure you wipe Dalvik Cache. If you have a EXT4 or EXT2 Mount Script Installed, Sometimes you'll need to format your memory card or take the memory card out after you flashed it. It happened to me sometimes.

Hopefully this will solve your problem, but if It doesn't, you can try to use ODIN and Flash Gingerbread 2.3.7, and revert back to stock.

Noob question....using this method will restore my phone to near factory? Would it possibly restore my mms that I screwed up?

Noob question 2....how do I wipe Dalvik cache?

Thanks for the help, but when I go into the recovery mode i see no option for "advanced".

Is this just for those who have something other than the stock rom?

I am the noobiest noob that ever noobed.

Use the recovery you had when you did the back up.

This is the problem with posting CWM backups vs. flashable backup zips. The MD5 sums change. You'll have to recheck the MD5sums and update them in "nandroid.md5" located in the cwm backup folder.
I would suggest the OP make a flashable zip of this stock rom to avoid md5 issues.
